Alex and Carr are gone. Troy Smith's status will be determined the next 7 games. If he shines we take a QB with a 3rd round pick. On the other hand if he flops a first rounder. Nate Davis will have to work hard to stick. Vick may have been there last April for less than a 1st rounder.

Eww. I just want to move on from that era. Let him go even if he wants to stay.
I think it would be silly to not explore the option of bringing him in as a backup. If he'd be willing to accept that role (and the salary that goes with it) he'd be a more than capable option as a second stringer if Troy were to go down.
Carr is gone for sure, since they discovered that he's not even adequate as the second string guy.
I think it's time for Alex to move on. He's had a number of years and in addition to topping out in maturation and skill level, he's been injury prone. He gets all the reps in practice and it's time to start investing in someone else.
Troy Smith will decide his own fate during the remaining games, but it would be difficult not to resign him and give him an opportunity next year.
The jury is out on Davis, but if he works during the offseason, he has to make it to camp next year.
So to round out Troy and Nate, they need another vet in camp and a draft choice to groom/create more competition.
